    Great purchase for power users and travelers/extroverts

    • Written by Steven R from Denver

    I absolutely love the Smart Battery Case for my XS Max. For some reason I actually really like the way it looks, the design is so much nicer now that it is a uniformed back. I took the case camping with me and with both iPhone and SBC at 100%, it lasted me from Friday morning until Sunday afternoon before needing to plug back in, with some iPhone battery to spare.

    It's a great product and might not be necessary for everyday use but is a very "peace of mind" type of purchase to know you have it for those occasions where you know you'll be wanting as much battery life as possible.

    I think both colors would be great. I have the black case and wish I had went with the white case because it stands out a little more and looks more premium IMO. But I'm still happy with the black option.

    Love it so far!

    • Written by Clela M from Lacey

    I originally bought this case in the Pink Sand color but in only a few days of use it was completely stained on the sides. I exchanged it out for the Black one and it definitely was the best decision! Love the functionality of the case and I no longer have to charge my phone every night now I can go two days. I would recommend the Black color over the Pink Sand or White. It's a great investment for your XS Max.

    Fantastic product for my iPhone XS Max.

    • Written by John R from Copiague

    I just bought this case yesterday 4/28/19 and I must say it is well worth the price for what it does. I was able to charge both case and phone at the same time which was a huge plus. I definitely recommend to anyone who looks to have an extra boost of battery life. :-)

    The best battery case for the XR

    • Written by Wise Y from New York

    I have used iPhone XR in a Apple Smart Battery (XR+ASB) case for about a month. The case arrived with no charge. I recommend that people charge the case first for 10 minutes before installing the iPhone because the case has a processor and it needs the battery to be partly charged to operate. Once the case is partly charged and the iPhone is inserted, the case will detect whether the iPhone needs to be charged and proceed to charge the iPhone first before it charges itself. By the way, the best way to preserve the iPhone battery is by topping up the iPhone battery instead of going through a full discharge cycle before charging. Battery life is related to the number of cycles they are charged and discharged. Once the XR+ASB is fully charged, Apple says that it will support 39 hours of talk time, 27 hours of video, and 22 hours of internet. In my experience, Internet use is closer to 25 hours if I use WiFi instead of cell to connect to the Internet. The ASB case eliminates all battery anxiety. You can use it as much as you want for 24 hours without running out of battery. A fully charged XR+ASB will go for 5 days with occasional phoning, texting, and emailing. So, if I forget my charger on 5-day trip overseas, I don’t buy a charger or external battery. While the ASB case adds weight and bulk to the XR, it protects the phone but I drop it less because the silicone surface provides friction that prevent it from slipping out of pockets and fingers. Finally, the ASB case encloses the battery in waterproof silicone and the case’s external lightning port is the only part exposed to water. The XR, XS, and XSM are water resistant to 50 meters. So, if I drop my XR+ASB case into water, I just remove and dry the iPhone and lightning ports to prevent corrosion.

    I just run my business by the Iphone so my battery runs out every afternoon at 5 pm aprox, now I can used for the whole day with no problems of using ecternal batteries and cables. also the wireless charging is a big plus so i just have on in the car so Im still with no cables in the car. AWESOME performance in the first week. No doubt I will buy another one for the wife so she always forget to charge every day.

    Any phone without this is just silly.

    • Written by Kamarr E from Smyrna

    My phone hasn’t been on the charger since 5am, and it’s still at 100% in the afternoon.

    If the battery case runs out of power and you don’t like the size of it, Carry a slimmer case.

    This works with the wireless charging pad.

    I’d highly recommend for any iPhone operator. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Apple iPhone XS MAX Smart Case

    • Written by Daniel K from SOUTHAVEN

    Omg I am so in love with this case. The first time I grabbed it , it does slip out of your hand. I think it is because it's a MATTE RUBBER TYPE OF MATERIAL. This is the BEST CASE I have ever owned since the very first iPhone 3 came out. I recommend you to try it. All the other cases I bought I was almost DROPPING it and could not hold on to it. Thank you APPLE for making this extra battery case. the only issue I am having is when I place it on the BELKIN WIRELESS CHARGER BOOST UP with Qi it's still not charging the CASE. Also WIRELESS Charging in my New GMC TRUCK Charges the iPhone but not the SMART CASE. So I took the iPhone XS max out of the Smart case and I am now charging up the Smart Case Via Lightening Cable just to see if I first needed to do it that way. I will update my review once I find out what the deal is with that. iPhone was showing in notifications that SMART CASE had 0% battery life and iPhone XS MAX was at 100%. Hmmmmm. Still love the case little pricy at $159.00 but well worth it. The quality of the GRIP is in sane plus I get more time cause I watch a lot of movies on my iphone;

    Does what it says, integration is awesome.

    • Written by Taegh S from NAPERVILLE

    First off, Steve Jobs would have never let this thing pass, it makes the phone extremely bulky, and Apple making a case suggests that their phones aren’t durable enough on their own to last daily use. That being said the negative reviews are largely biased.

    As an external battery, it’s excellent and uses software to map and coordinate when the battery should charge itself, how the iPhone charges, and when power should be supplied. Wireless charging is conserved, making this a great accessory for people that have battery anxiety or are planning long trips to areas that may not have reliable access to power.

    Actually Smart

    • Written by Paul K from Madison

    I've had this case since launch and has been working pretty well. I've been reading some reviews about how it's not smart at all and wished there was a switch. Not many customer seems to understand how this works. The Smart Battery case works very well and is actually smart. If both your phone and the case is 100%, the battery on the case will be used first till it reaches 0% then start using your battery on your actual phone. This can prolong the life of the actual battery on your device itself. So really no need for a switch.

    Yes it's a bit bulky but ergonomically it is comfortable to hold, and fits in your pocket comfortably (Yes it's subjective as it depends on what type of pants you are wearing).

    This case is amazing. Yes, it has a little weight but I promise after a day or two you’re fully used to it and you’ll be in love. It gives me a full day and a half charge at the least. I’ve been waiting for Apple to release a charging case since the X and I’m so thankful they released one for my XSM. I highly recommend this case even for the price. Don’t hesitate.

    Surprisingly good

    • Written by GEORGE K from Culpeper

    It is far easier to get used to this than I expected. The case feels good to the touch and is probably smaller than you might expect for the life of the battery. Gives me (as a fairly heavy user) the potential for a day ½ to two days of use.

    Buttons do *not* feel as good as the Apple leather case, but they are better than most aftermarket cases.

    For me, the biggest negative is that the bottom of the case has a lip. If you used a certain kind of gesture with a bare XS Max or one with just the Apple leather case, you will have to change your angle of attack for the swipe upwards.

    It is big but will still fit comfortably in most uniform khakis and even in jeans, provided the jeans are of a normal fit.

    There is no degradation in cellular signal strength, which is a surprise.

    Some people might find that the case makes it easier to hold onto your iPhone while working for an extended period or watching a movie.

    Maybe the size is not for everybody, but I can recommend this to anybody looking for longer lifespan in your XS Max.

    breaks the charging barrier

    • Written by John R from Minneapolis

    I've used a lot of charging cases for my iPhones, because I have always loved the idea of being able to use my phone while it charges away without being tied down by a cord. But I had to be willing to add not just bulk but some serious weight to my phone. Batteries are heavy! But this new charging case by Apple is fantastic. To begin with, it is much lighter than the other phone charging cases I've gotten in the past. Plus, somehow the charging case lasts so much longer than the other ones I've used!

    For me, this charging case completely solves the problem of having enough energy for my phone. I highly recommend it.

    Loving my 2+ day battery life

    • Written by Jenny J from Houston

    I bought this case in black for my XS Max (the white is beautiful but my little sister has the white which is now more of a white with random blue + black smudges thanks to her jeans) and I love it! It feels great in my hand and is honestly not that heavy, maybe compared to a silicone case but not to an Otterbox case which is what I switched over from.

    PROS: I don't have to charge my phone every night unless I want to, I don't have to carry around my portable charger anymore thus making my purse lighter, it's smooth and sleek as heck. I feel more at ease traveling and on late nights out because I know that I'll always have enough battery to call myself a ride home or find directions home with Maps in a foreign city

    CONS: only comes in 2 colors, the lock button is quite 'deep' and hard to reach, you can't toggle the charging ability of the case on and off (so you're in a perpetual state of charging, which makes me worry about how my XS Max battery will be affected in the long-run). And it's a little expensive!

    Overall, I'm super happy with this case and I'm glad Apple has finally come out with some new smart cases!

    Very goof so far

    • Written by Mark B from San Francisco

    I like it. I’ve charged the phone and charger as a pair by wire plugin, and via Qi charging.

    I like the little extra heft to it, which is fine because the phones are a tad slim any shiny anyway, and feel great in my palm.

    I wish the 2 battery status indicatoer woul stay on the screen a bit longer, and also show up in the pull down menu

    Cool product.

    Finally An Official Case for Apple's + Size iPhone!!!!

    • Written by Liqian S from San Francisco

    I have been waiting for apple's own battery case for its + size iPhone for 3 years. Now I finally got it and more importantly, I love it. The case will definitely add bulk and weight to your iPhone. However, I got used to the weight in about 15 minutes after put the case in my iPhone XS Max, and the battery bump actually improve the in hand feeling when holding the phone. Even though my iPhone XS Max has excellent battery life but extra usage time is always welcome. Highly recommend this battery case to people who use their phones a lot on the road. It just works!
